Accident FAQs

If I am injured in a car accident, who pays for my medical care?

Whether you are at fault or not, you have special insurance on your automobile policy that covers you for medical care. This insurance is called PIP which stands for Personal Injury Protection. Even If you were a passenger, pedestrian or bicyclist, you may also be eligible for PIP benefits through either your own insurance company or the insurer of the person who hit you.

If I don't feel injured after an automobile accident, do I have to see a doctor?

Both you and your passengers should consider seeing a doctor after an accident. The doctor may recognize injuries, sometimes serious, that may not be apparent to you at that moment in time. Some injuries may take time to manifest themselves.

How soon after an accident should I go to the doctor?

Currently, if you are involved in a motor vehicle accident in Florida, you only have 14 days to seek medical attention for injuries that may have occurred. The 14-day rule gives little time for injured parties to seek medical treatment. Often, people involved in a motor vehicle accident wait to seek medical attention. They assume their aches and pains will “go away with time.” If you wait longer than 14 days to seek a consultation with a healthcare provider, you will lose all of your PIP benefits. In order to make sure you have full access to your PIP benefits, it is important to contact us right away!

The longer you wait to see a doctor, the longer it may take to recover. Your health is precious; don’t delay in getting the help you need!

Can I go to any doctor I want or does my insurance company get to pick?

In auto accident cases, your PIP insurance company has no right to choose your treating health care provider or doctor. You can go to any doctor you like.
